LibriVox recording of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Read by Ruth Golding.
A collection of twelve short stories featuring Conan Doyle's legendary detective, originally published as single stories in Strand Magazine and subsequently collected into a single volume.
There is not always a crime committed nor a culprit to find, and when there is, Holmes does not invariably get his man. However, his extraordinary powers of deduction generally solve the mystery, often to the discomfiture of the official police force. Holmes is a man of many facets, and I do not share the common perception of Holmes as cold and humourless: his sense of fun can be sparkling, and there are moments of rare pathos. (Summary by Ruth Golding)

Thank you Ruthie! Your reading gave this book life (I'm not really one for this genre), but your accents, different vocals and complete knowledge of what you are reading is fantastic, as is everything you've read on here! You made the book live. Awesome, thank you :D

An excellent reading. I had no idea what I had been missing by not reading Sherlock before now.

I second MikeZane - Ruth Golding is one of my favorite readers and she does a fantastic job of making this familiar material fresh! You can check out all Ruth's readings for Librivox here.

We are treated to more adventures of Sherlock Holmes, how he gets the bad guys, and how, once in a while, the bad guys (and girls) get him.
Ruth G is a classic reader; she has read many books on Librivox and her readings are always excellent. All in all, this is a wonderful reading. Enjoy!
